Fantastic show last night at the Royal Festival Hall. A morphing, messaging, organic, light show mediated the entire thing. It instructed us, mesmerised us, counselled us and shocked us in turn. Massive Attack's music features in films like Pi and The Matrix. They provide the mood music and take the visual concepts back in exchange. Information is both liberation and intoxication in this concept, the weapon of resistance and the instrument of authority.
The highlight of the evening was a performance of 'Angel' that was seductive and menacing in equal measure.
However, the real star of the show was the Royal Festival Hall itself. I've heard classical music in the new Hall but its acoustics provide a sonic bubble for trip hop just as well! It's a stunning venue in every way and an utter pleasure to spend time there. Get a membership- it will be the best £40 you'll ever spend.
